Monday Inspiration Challenge: 12/27
Has the dust settled at your house yet? Christmas came and went like a tornado for us! Welcome back to PSA Stamp Camp blog. We are working this week and will have some great posts for our readers.
Last week I was inspired by this fun idea for a homemade wreath. I know a woman that collects wine and champagne corks. She writes the date and who she was with when she shared the drink. Her collection is full of great memories. Wouldn't this wreath be a great way to display her corks?
I was inspired to create a quick holiday card. The wreath was so simple, so wintery – it conjured up the holidays for me. I stamped the snowman from PSA Vintage Snowman and colored him up with a metallic marker to make it pop. I love these papers, too – they really stand out.
For this week's inspiration image, I am choosing something that screams New Years Eve! Have you visited Art Rising.com? It's a division of Art.com that sells emerging and established artists work across the world. The artist of this work is new to me: her name is Jackie Johnston from Wasco, WA. You can view her complete profile and see her online gallery here. http://www.artistrising.com/shop/profile/5346/Jackie-Johnston.htm . You can buy this print here too.
Wouldn't it look great in your bar or dining room? What will you create inspired by this image? We have a great stamp that goes along perfectly with this image. It's from PSA Love Birds and it's toasting champagne glasses.
Send me a photo of your craft inspired by this image by no later than Sunday, 1/2 at 5 pm to be posted Monday, 1/3. You don't HAVE to use Peel & Stick stamps - just whatever you have around the house. Happy Crafting!
